senator's son, a national guardsman soon to ship out to iraq, spoke eloquently about his father's asacrifice in the face of family tragedy. >> please welcome beau biden. >> and my brother banana fanna foe biden. [laughter] >> i'm -- i'm -- i'm uncomfortable with real emotion. >> senator biden took the stage, but never forgot where he came from. >> and i'm honored to represent the first state, my state, the state of delaware. >> is that delaware over there? or did pennsylvania just take a dump? boom, boom! but of course joe biden is on the ticket to brew up obama's porcelain white collar. >> almost every single night i take the train home to wilmington, delaware. sometimes very late. as i sit there in my seat, i look out that window, and i see those flickering lights of the homes that pass by, i can almost hear the conversation they're having at their kitchen table. >> sounds something like this -- why can't we pay our mortgage? why is joe biden -- why do we live near the train tracks? but mostly he did what vice presidential candidates are supposed to do -- try to get into some

in iraq. i will also renew the tough, direct diplomacy. i will cut taxes. i will build new partnerships to defeat the threats of the 21st century, terrorism and nuclear proliferation, poverty, genocide, climate change and disease. >> and then, on my second day. i will put everything back. on my second day, everything will go back to the way it was. give me something to do on my third day. and then. if senator obama's positive vision of the future didn't do anything for you, perhaps i could interest you in a negative look at the past. >> we love this country too much to let the next four years look just like the last eight. on november 4th, we must stand up and say, eight is enough. >> jon: we must take it one day at a time. to restore good times and happy days. whether you're married with children or just friends, cheers to you, "monday night football." it was a night of historic moments. the first african-american nominee and a stadium full of democrats chanting -- >> jon: don't be nervous. they're not saying "u.s.a., they're saying "boo s.a." while it can't get freakier than that. ♪

spokesman for the coalition provisional authority in iraq, a more junior dan senor >> democracy we often said when we were there that democracy is messy. if you want clean and tidy there's dictatorship but right now these iraqis political leaders are immersed in their first sort of democratic experiment >> jon: i get you, man. it was the early to mid, man. everybody was experimenting with democracy then. what's up? you know what [bleep] i'm out of here. just go at it, you two. >> just a reminder of the chaos that a lot of the policies of this administration have sowed. chaos in the arab spring. chaos for allies in israel. there are certainly areas that are problematic. we are having some tough days. we'll have tough days ahead. what we've seen in the last three days is a product of policies that have been building over the last three years. if we are successful in building some modicum democracy, it will be an enormous success. you think the president's policy in the middle east has been a success. looks like a disaster to most americans. there has been significance violence in recent we

doing the green revolution right after the election there and ahmadinejad was reelected in iraq and accusations of fraud even then the government was saying "these are not our people rising up, these are western agents whipping up, these are saboteurs." >> that's right. >> jon: there is never any sense that there's fallibility. >> no, it's always deflected into an anti-western-- one of the things i try to say in the book is that what happened to me way back in the days of fax machines was a kind of prelude, a kind of prologue, if you like, to what's happening now. because i think you can draw a straight line from then to now and see the growth of this phenomenon of sort of organized outrage. >> jon: and what stops it? in your mind is it everyone standing up at once or is it something that has to burn out within its own population? >> i think unfortunately that, probably. and i think there's times that it does. i mean, you know, the rule of the aoeu toe la is not popular in iran. the rule of the taliban was not popular in afghanistan. so this stuff does seem to take over, particu

(laughter) >> we've seen better days. >> jon: you run a constitutional monarchy. >> that's right. >> jon: in the middle of the largest democratic i don't want to say uprising but transition in your part of the world. what happens to you? how do you manage that without being deposed like some of these other countries have had to deal with? >> jordan is part of the arab spring also. but the arab spring means something different to every country. different countries are going through different paces. you know, i keep saying that whatever the middle east is going through is going to be something that will take five, ten, 15 years and each country is going to have its own unique experiment of this. the republics have gone through a much tougher version of this than the monarchies, funny enough. but i hope this is something we all look back five, ten, 15 years from now and say that arab spring is a good thing. and i believe i
